Research opportunities for reducing racial disparities in kidney disease

Adv Ren Replace Ther. 2004 Jan;11(1):59-65. doi: 10.1053/j.arrt.2003.10.009.


Several minority populations in the United States have higher risks for end-stage renal disease than does the white population. This article addresses some areas for research aimed at reducing the disproportionate risks. Four general areas are considered: health services, risk factors and causative agents, clinical trials, and awareness campaigns.
